Great little spot to listen to live music and watch the people walk down the streets of Ybor. They offer food, but we haven't tried it yet. Drinks in Ybor are pricier than other spots because of the tourists, but the prices weren't bad. $4.25 for a corona and the bar tenders are friendly and fast. We have tried other... More

I have heard mixed response and thus always was apprehensive going with family but I am glad we did. Stopped there for a quick lunch. We were hungry and the food that came out of the kitchen was also good paired with live music. It was great. Will surely return.

There were 5 of us and we were in a semi-hurry for lunch. We all ordered quickly. Our waitress took our orders and got them in fast. Several of us had the Buffalo wrap which was really good. Then others had burgers which everyone also enjoyed. We were in and out in less than an hour and it was good... More

We enjoy eating here as the food is good and the atmosphere kind of fun. Really enjoy their appetizers. We have eaten at the Westshore Blvd and the Ybor City locations.

I've heard good reports about green iguana and the drive from our hotel was worth it. It was a little confusing because uts located across the street from their old location. Food and presentation was good and hearty and the margaritas were just right. Prices were average and decor was inviting. In other words i will visit again.

My family and I have visited Green Iguana a few times since moving to South Tampa late last year. At first we enjoyed it but the food and service since our first visit has declined. At the last visit the table was sticky and the outside area smelled like stale beer. Food lately has been hit or miss. We will... More

Had a good fish sandwich with wedge salad. It was very good and decent portion. My husband had the Cuban sandwich with fries and it was really good. We had good service and would definitely eat there again.
